What are the requirements for volunteering at CAMC?
Interested individuals must apply either online or obtain a paper application by contacting the Volunteer Service office at (304) 388-7426.
Applicants are contacted for an interview to discuss availability, interests and skills. Applicants who are offered a role as a volunteer will be subject to a background check and reference check prior to starting.
Once the application process is complete, new volunteers will participate in a mandatory health review and volunteer orientation before starting their assignment.
Volunteers must commit to serve a minimum of 4 hours per week, for a minimum of 4 months. For this reason, we cannot accept short term volunteers for the purpose of obtaining community service hours for a one time requirement.
How long does it take to complete this process?
The length of time varies but typically takes two to four weeks to complete and is dependent on factors such as the applicant's availability, current number of applicants, the response time from references and background investigations.

When do volunteers serve?
While we appreciate help all the time, the greatest demand for volunteers is between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m., Monday through Friday. Volunteers are assigned to a specific department with a schedule in order to help cover the most demanding times for that department or unit.
A limited number of areas have the need for volunteers on evenings and weekends.
